Start Using a Whole-House Dehumidifier

man-desk-fanWow, it’s been hot out there. It shouldn’t be a surprise. It gets hot every summer. But after a cool autumn and frigid, snowy winter, it’s easy to forget that. There is no denying it now, though. Summer is here. And, to quote a wise, unknown source—it’s not the heat. It’s the humidity. In truth, it’s both. And they are both making themselves known. If you want to stay truly comfortable, you should be using a whole-house dehumidifier.

Dehumidifiers offer a number of benefits to homeowners. And whole-house dehumidifiers are the cream of the crop. There is no way that a standalone dehumidifier can match the quality performance that a whole-house dehumidifier in Southern Vermont can offer. At least, not one that’s installed by our team. Because we always do it right. Keep the following information in mind. Call with any questions. And let our team help you live comfortably. 

Why Not Just Blast My AC?

It is true that your air conditioner does dehumidify the air as it runs. That is why it has a condensate drain line. To remove the moisture pulled from the air in your home from that home. However, this is not the designated purpose of your air conditioning system. And if you’re serious about living comfortably, then you need something designated for that purpose. And that something is a whole-house dehumidifier.

How Does It Work?

Let’s start with the issue at hand. Humidity. Did you know that humid air feels so uncomfortable when it’s hot outside because it retains heat? That’s due to the moisture in the air. That’s why you’ll sometimes hear people talk about a “nice, dry heat.” There’s certainly not a lot of that around here.  We’ve got the mean and humid kind exclusively, it seems. At least, that’s what we’ve got outside.

By using a dehumidifier in your home, you pull that moisture from the air. That in and of itself can help you to feel cooler. When you remove that moisture, the air literally is not capable of retaining so much heat. And when you remove some of that moisture from the air—you’re setting your AC up for success!

Is It Really Worth It?

Yes, absolutely. When you run a whole-house dehumidifier, you’ll need to rely on your air conditioner less. In fact, modern systems like many ductless mini splits have “dry” modes that function as dehumidifiers. It won’t quite cool your home like an AC, but is very often all you really need to feel comfortable.

You’re also protecting your indoor air quality when you remove excessive humidity from your home. If there is too much humidity in your home’s air, then you’re opening yourself up to issues like:

  • Mold growth.
  • Wood rot.
  • Aggravated allergies.
  • Bad odors.

and a lot more. So get that humidity out, and let true comfort in. Let us know if you’re ready to take advantage of all that a whole-house dehumidifier has to offer.
